Roger fights off challenge

03.09.2009 | Tennis

Roger had to fight off a few challenging moments from Simon Greul, but marched on into the next round of the US Open without dropping a set. He dispatched the German 6-3 7-5 7-5.


"I just had to make him play more shots, be more tough," said Roger. "I had to raise my level today to win because that's what was required to get through."


In his first match under the lights in 2009, Roger won the second-round match in straight sets but it was not a straightforward win as the world number 65 forced our top seed to play some top-drawer tennis earlier in the tournament than he is accustomed to. Roger will next face Lleyton Hewitt, who cruised past Argentina's Juan Ignacio Chela.

Roger you did a nice job of winning that match from Hewitt. You started off rather slowly but I always have faith in your ability to come out of nowhere and win the match you are playing. You won't need luck to win your next match. All you need to do is e
